Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best seller written by Criminal Minds actor/director, Matthew Gray Gubler.

This charming and inspiring story is the perfect gift for kids (and grown-up kids) alike! 

Rumple Buttercup has five crooked teeth, three strands of hair, green skin, and his left foot is slightly bigger than his right.

He is weird.

Join him and Candy Corn Carl (his imaginary friend made of trash) as they learn the joy of individuality as well as the magic of belonging.

It’s amazing!

Although I’m Matthew’s fan from Taiwan, who mainly speaks mandarin, I can totally understand the story and even be touched by it. I love it when Matthew changes his voice to play different characters. I believe that everyone will enjoy this great book——Rumple Buttercup.

Beautiful story

I have the hard copy, but it feels so personal hearing it from the authors voice. He did such a beautiful job. My son and i listened to the story and aside from him wanting cotton candy pancakes, he overall understood the message coming from the story. Please be kind to one another, one act of kindness can go a very long way.

For kids of all ages

MGG is one of the greatest human souls in existence! From his work as Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds to 68 Kill he puts so much time and effort into everything he does. This book makes everyone feel welcome and find courage to be themselves. I’m 17 and I have to admit it’s one of the greatest books I’ve ever read! So thank you Matthew Gray Gubler for everything you have done for this world we truly do not deserve you.

warm fuzzies

This was a heartwarming, if short, story. It is a great story for children about acceptance, of both yourself and others. Matthew does a wonderful job narrating and switching up voices for all the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it
